9 Types of Users: Miracle Worker

Miracle Worker: "But it read a file from it yesterday!" 'Sir, at a guess, this disk has been swollowed and regurgitated.' "But I did that a month ago, and it read a file from it yesterday!"

Advantages: Apparently has remarkable luck when you aren't around.

Disadvantages: People complain when support folks actually use the word 'horse-puckey'.

Symptoms: Loses all ability to do impossible when you're around. Must be the kryptonite in your pocket.

Real Case: At least three users have claimed that they've loaded IBM WordPerfect from Macintosh disks.
